MBT - leading IT service provider to the telecommunications industry - opens its European headquarters in Düsseldorf / Costs substantially reduced whilst quality is maintained - and improved!

Duesseldorf (ots) - MBT, a worldwide provider of IT services, has been successfully operating in Europe for a number of years. MBT's technical expertise centres on information technologies essential to the Telecommunications industry - from Professional Services and Software Development and Testing to End-to-End Applications Management and Consulting Services.

January 2003 - MBT opens new European headquarters in Düsseldorf

Offering cost-effective solutions to today's economically sensitive Telecommunications sector is the aim of IT service providers. "With consistent management of software applications by MBT costs can be reduced by up to 50%, with no reduction in the level of service - indeed it is often improved." explains Jens Denecke, CEO of MBT Europe. Over the last few years MBT has grown to be one of the leading specialists in mission critical applications in the Telecommunications sector in Europe - especially where support, time-sensitive financial applications and safety-related processes are key. Denecke continues: "Our experienced management and people fully understand the structure and requirements of each regional Telecommunications market. We understand exactly our clients' needs and develop solutions in partnership with them".

Onsite-Offshore Method

We focus our work on our clients' operational and economic challenges: local teams with relevant market insight look after our clients' projects from initial analysis through to implementation, supported by our Competence and Support Centres in Europe and India. MBT's clients therefore benefit from the technical expertise of our specialists in India without incurring the costs, or time delays, often associated with offshore working.

MBT is now one of the largest IT service providers in Europe - our business has grown by 50% every year over the last five years. "Our method of working has proven successful in consistently lowering clients' costs whilst upholding quality standards - and even improving upon them. We understand our clients quite simply because we understand the Telecommunications industry" says Denecke. MBT maintains successful business relationships with leading Telecommunications companies such as Alltel, British Telecom, MACH, Qwest and Rockwell, and counts innovators such as Convergys and Siebel as key partners. These partners with whom we exchange knowledge help ensure and enhance our high standards. MBT is both CMM Level 5 and BS7799 accredited and an interoperability testing partner of VeriSign.
